These boats are generally used for exploring the coastal area or inland trips, fishing, safety cover for other watersports, waterskiing or as a support boat for diving or other activities.

Whether you use powerboats for leisure or work, or in connection with another activity such as sailing or rescue, the RYA have developed a course for you. We deliver the development

All Courses available from Menai Bridge or Conwy
